What is Estate Litigation?

Essex County Probate Attorney

Estate litigation involves lawsuits that arise during the probate of a recently deceased person's estate. Administering an estate is often difficult and time-consuming, even if the decedent left a valid will. Because the process is not clear cut and occurs after the passing of a loved one, it can be stressful and emotionally draining. When family members or beneficiaries begin to argue about their inheritance or how the estate is being managed, a lawsuit may be filed.

The Benefits of Enlisting an Attorney for Estate Litigation

Even if the estate administration hasn't been contentious, it can be beneficial to have an Essex County probate lawyer to help calm emotions between family members and answer questions and concerns. In the event that problems arise during administration, I prefer to negotiate for a peaceful resolution between the two parties first. If litigation cannot be prevented, however, I can represent your best interests effectively, as I am a New Jersey Supreme Court certified civil trial attorney.

My firm understands that administering an estate or trust is a difficult process, which is why I provide attentive representation to trustees and administrators. My team understands the pressure of handling another's estate and can defend and guide individuals in this position.
